Amazing New Project.

  We have partnered with this fabulous duo at www.thebrinkonline.org as they journey through Central America getting to the real heart of the migration situation as they link up with those on the road. In their own words: “The Brink is a dynamic, fiercely independent, not-for-profit media platform dedicated to sharing real stories about...

Happy Birthday to us!

What a busy time we’ve had! There’s so much to catch up on. We’ve appointed a Volunteer Coordinator and a Depot Manager; done masses of outreach; sorted tonnes of aid and turned THREE on September 1st. Little did we know when we started that Massive Outpouring of Love would continue to grow and flourish...

What a week!

It’s been a pretty amazing week for us; a little overwhelming truth be told. Local MSP Joan McAlpine spoke very highly of Massive Outpouring of Love at Scottish Parliament (see here) during Refugee Week. “MOOL has done so much to humanize the refugee crisis and makes a real difference to refugees here in Scotland...

Scottish Parliament

Moving Stories is Moving Fast!

Moving Stories is certainly picking up pace! We are a few weeks (well, a few Monday evenings!) into rehearsal now and it’s sounding amazing thanks to the dedication of the choir and the genius of Lucy Renwick and Kate Howard. We’ve had photo shoots, more interviews, meetings round kitchen tables, late nights, tears, a...

What a Day!

We had an amazing first rehearsal workshop day at The Theatre Royal, Dumfries on Saturday. So many wonderful people attended, sang their hearts and brought wonderful grub to share and fuel out shenanigans! The Moving Stories Community Choir certainly had a beautiful birth. Huge thanks to Kate Howard, Lucy Renwick and everyone who worked...

#BeLikeStAndrew

#BeLikeStAndrew This year, Scotland is promoting kindness on St Andrew’s Day. We always promote kindness here at MOOL HQ but we’re always delighted when more people stick their head above the parapet and call for more! For our part, we’ll be trying to organise as many SNUG packs as we can (see poster above)...

MOBILE REFUGEE SUPPORT – Calais

If you’ve been into the depot at any time in the past six months you will have met Lynn, our amazing administrator.  She has transformed the office at MOOL HQ to a thing of efficiency, delight and laughter. She took a well-earned holiday recently and took time out to visit the Mobile Refugee Support...

Taste of Syria

This is going up a little late but I think it’s worth it anyway. Caroline Yates organised a fantastic event at the Wigtown Book Festival. Entitled “A taste of Syria” we had a wonderful selection of food provided by Mohammed (one of the resettled refugees) and in addition to some great poetry from a...
